    My New Song Maya Darchan (The Gift)

    UPDATE: After getting positive feedback and suggestions on my original mix, I've remixed it, and believe it to be more balanced.
    Thank you all for listening and commenting.

    Here is a new song I just finished.

    If you get bored with the vocals, the second half starting at 2:15 is all instrumental. If that doesn't work, may I recommend a yoga mat and a bottle of wine. lol
    Thank you for listening and please stay safe out there.
    My apologies for the typo in the thread title.
    Richard

    (Intro)

    Every time I see
    Every time I feel
    heard it on the outside
    nothing else is real
    it's all we know
    it's all a show
    and I can't get back
    it's starting to crack
    how did you know
    it's all been one big show
    hold me now

    how did I ever learn to feel this way?

    and every time I thought
    I'd know what to do
    and all of the reasons we care
    and it's all I know
    and it's more than I would be
    hold me now
    and all will go

    touching my heart
    and shine the light
    do
    would ever want to do

    darshan
    til you know

    all of the things
    all of the time
    all of the love

    That's lovely Richard! Nice pastoral vibes for a quiet Saturday morning

    Thanks for sharing
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    as always, thank you John for listening and for your comments.
    After some feedback regarding the mix, I may be revisiting this to fix some of the levels of the instruments which are overtaking the vocals.
    Pastoral...love that.

    This is really impressive!
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    And the code is a play, a play is a song, a song is a film, a film is a dance...

    Really nice song! The multi-layered arrangement reminds of the Relayer/GftO era of Yes!
    (IMHO maybe, just maybe, a tad softer guitar sound though..)

    Wow, thanks. I appreciate your kind words and Yes inspiration reference(I love those two albums).
    Also, I agree, the guitar was too loud in the mix, I loved it so much, but too much of a good thing like one too many scoops of ice cream.
    I lowered the level on it and adjusted several other instruments including vocals for what I hope to the listener is a more balanced experience.
    So thank you for you humble opinion, which I appreciate greatly!! It's when people throw soda bottles at me I get a little miffed! lol

    Anyway, here is the new mix, hope you like it.
